Early season sea turtle welcome sight at Fripp Beach
“We had an amazing turtle season last year here on Fripp,” she said. “Turtles had us all over the island all season long. Sadly, we also lost 3 nests to storms, which would have taken us to 120 total. I’m encouraged by the enthusiasm the Lowcountry shows for these amazing creatures and I hope that everyone helps spread the word about how we can all help our turtles.”
For the safety of the turtles and other wild life, please be sure to take home any items brought to the beach, fill in any holes dug in the sand, turn off all lights after dark, as this will confuse the turtles and could cause their death. Also, if you see a turtle on the beach, give it plenty of room and do not attempt to assist it in any way. These amazing turtles are endangered and are protected by Federal laws.
